  1. Just over a month ago I revealed my latest creation to the world, a scale model of the light rail vehicles that are located in my home city of Gold Coast (Queensland, Australia). Lego G: by Aaron Coghill, on Flickr Just over 3 years old the light rail system here is currently being extended to comprise a total of 19 stations over a 21km single line, using 18 Bombardier Flexity 2 LRVs (light rail vehicles). My Lego version of the G: (gee, the local name for the trams) is a roughly 1:40 scale, 8 wide, 136 studs long (8.5x normal straight track lengths), 7 carriages in yellow, dark gray & blue. I worked on the design for months getting the proportions right. In a twist of fate that i was on the right track a technical drawing i found when printed at the build scale, a 9V motor unit has the same wheel base as the printed drawing. Like the Flexity 2, the overall unit is made up of three different carriage types. A wheeled drivers unit, a suspended passenger unit (with doors) and another wheeled passenger unit that sits between the suspended units. So a LRV is made up of an odd number of carriages with the odd numbered units having wheeled contact & even carriages suspended between. It is powered by two 9V train motors that are positioned in the first & last carriages. And due to its design performs nicely on standard track geometry including a full 4x (90deg) curve. The carriages are joined together using old school ball hinge parts (two) placed at the top and bottom of each carriage. This keeps them straight and in line with each other., and allows for a bit of vertical movement due to tables never being level at shows. The side panels are built with a snot technique of tiles on plates. A friend owns Print on Bricks and did the small tiles while the large G: were done at a sign writers. I also created a light rail station in the same style at is located in my city.

    This is the "historic version" of my previous moc:
  3. Tramway line - RCX Automation

    This was an experiment of automation of a tramway line with an old LEGO RCX brick: All sensors and cables are 100% LEGO. There are 8 light sensor, 4 (two couples, one couple for station and one for switch zone) on input 1 and 4 on input 2. 3 output, output A (station 1 - switch), output B (station 2 - switch) and output C (switch zone). Everything is handled by NQC program

  5. Tram of Opicina

    Hi! I'm a new train LEGO fan, my new passion started last spring... But I think that a LEGO tram is missing, so I created in LEGO the tram of my little city. This is my MOC: Tram of Opicina #DSC_1058 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Tram of Opicina #IMG_2473 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Tram of Opicina #IMG_2496 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Tram of Opicina #DSC_1061 by Prison Brick, on Flickr Now I submit it on LEGO Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/158520 Please, support & share if you like it! Thanks! Every comment helps me to improve!
  6. I finally managed to pick up a space monorail set in decent condition and at a decent price so thought I'd have a play around with it. The space theme didn't really fit into my city! So I had to come up with a plan. Ever since the 60097 set was released I knew the tram looked ideal so here is my first attempt at converting the 60097 tram set onto monorail. It seems to work well, you can barely see the battery or the motor so I'm not too bothered about that. Image 1 This layout is just on my kitchen floor, the next stage is to move this into my city, I'll raise the city up and have this mostly running underneath. This is a short video of it running: This is the station in it's place from set 60097 and some monorail track set out: Image 2
  7. Dieselpunk Style Floating City

    You may have a city made of Lego, but what about a Dieselpunk style floating city? I really love the early 20th century, I love art deco and early modern art, I love those vintage cars and trams. I love giant airships floating on the sky. I wonder, what if I mixed all that elements with a sci-fi city theme. That's why I build this project. I want to explore the possibility of an alternate reality. The floating city could be a series of products, just like the Lego city products. This project here is a core piece of the floating city, we can introduce new sets to expand the city. What includes in this set are a floating 3-story house, a flying tram, a flying taxi and a few figures. The figures are kind of random chosed from my figures collection, I will update the figure's design if this project is welcomed. The 3-story house is a modular build with interior, which includes a pizza take-out window and an hot dog take-out window. The flying car included with the set can stop by and buy food from the windows. There's a tram stop at the door, a figure can stand there and wait for the tram. If you like this, please support me on the LEGO IDEAS site. Any suggestion are also welcomed, thanks.
  8. MOC - BKV Tatra T5C5 tram

    Hi all MOCers, I finished this MOC of Budapest tramway approx a year ago but I never had time to take some photos and show it to the community. So, here it is. The original tram was manufactured by CKD in Czechoslovakia for Budapest Transport company. A total of 322 cars were delivered between 1979 and 1984 (and all of them still running). In the first times they were used to go single (they have driver's cab only on one end so they needed loops on end stations), then with the growth of the number of passangers they started to operate them coupling two or three cars together. Now these trams run in line 1 and 14 with three cars and line 12,17,28,37,41,56,56A,59,59B,61 with two cars. The LEGO-tram runs using its 2 9V train motors, each car has one motor. Other bogie is dummy, however it uses train wheels, because the standard wheel holder part is simply two high for this application. I'm proud on the pantograph design, but I know, some of the purist won't like the cut and curved 3 mm diameter hose. Unfortunately the clip with bar holder doesn't exist in red colour - a red pantograph could be autenthic, however due to weathering and coal-dust from upper part they are only red a couple of days after painting, then they become black. Hope, you like it. Please leave your comments and critics here. :)
  9. First time poster here with a custom build I did based on tramcars that I've seen in the past. I've always liked the look of these and I wanted to design one that looked a bit more bold. I came up with this design in LDD and built it to keep rowdy citizens in my Lego city in line! It runs on standard Lego train track and I made it flexible enough to handle tight turns and bumps in the track. Each passenger car can hold 4 minifigures (a driver and 3 troopers).

  10. XIX Century City

    Here is my latest creation prepared for Brickfete 2016 in Toronto. Inspiration came from old pictures of Belgrade, Serbia. I have spent around 50 hours of building time during two weeks. Parts count: around 15,000 DSCN5800 by Dushko D, on Flickr DSCN5801 by Dushko D, on Flickr DSCN5804 by Dushko D, on Flickr DSCN5805 by Dushko D, on Flickr DSCN5809 by Dushko D, on Flickr
  11. [MOC] Tiny 9v Tram with wagon

    The idea for this work has come from the LDD model posted by the member Mudoch17 here: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=119791 The main rail car is built on a 9v motor using a 4,5v loco base and the wagon is built on a regular 16x6 plate. So, event they look similar, they were built in different ways. More pictures could be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...157667833314506 LEGO Tram 05 by Severus A, on Flickr LEGO Tram 04 by Severus A, on Flickr LEGO tram 03 by Severus A, on Flickr
  12. Hi all. I'm currently working on a new lego room and loft space and wondering what long term project to start I've had thoughts of the wisbeach and Upwell tramway rekindled. I've always planned a loft railway and this seems like a great prototype for a lego model. Reasonable flat... plenty of character and features on a 'small' scale. I've seen numerous lego versions of 'Toby' the tram and mavis but I'd want them powered. Last time I did lego trains was the 9 system. Could you tell/show me how the newer power functions is set up in the smallest possible space please? I'd love to see your small engines and diesel and find out how you squeeze everything in. Am i right in thinking there's 4 parts... the ir reciever and controller, motor and battery box? I will of course show my progress shortly! For those not familiar with the tramway I found this great little website: http://www.lner.info/co/GER/wisbech/wisbech.php
  13. Tram.

    I present you the model of the city tram. The image of the collective, without reference to any original, but the wheels are. The model is easy to assemble, but, specialized items from a passenger train. The scale approximate. Lego City style. Waiting for comments. Tram can have only one car. So, you should not do. Thank you for watching.
  14. Hello Everybody, This time my design is Creator series UCS Style Nostalgic Tram... He is currently held in Istanbul tram is already divided. This nostalgic tram that has become a symbol of Istanbul, especially because I chose the color compatibility with Lego. White, Red, Black and very light Gray tones was really compatible. The total number of Parts; Tram: 4025 Parts Base: 688 Parts Total: 4713 Parts Best regards,
  15. Hello, in Hamburg isn't real summer yet, but: In the Ukonio City! ;-) This is my new City Layout. It includes the (9V motorized) Town Square Tram (60097) and, of course, the huge Ferris Wheel (10247). It would be great, if you tell me, what you think. Do you have any suggestions? Have a great (and sunny) day Andres
  16. [MOC] Hong Kong Tramways Fully RC with LED This time for everyone Introducing my latest works - Hong Kong Tram Fully RC with LED Technic figure scale 1: 1 Recent I had found himself a little strange, always to build mining equirments or trucks, bus ... why I haven't to build local characteristics of the vehicle? So I PART 5 MOC flagship works as a Hong Kong Tram. This tram will not only just look, there is also abundant within the machinery, it can automatically switch on and off the door, it can automatically rotate the route marked, also it can walk in the city / sysiem train path. There are more exciting works and teaching: https://www.facebook.com/shineYucorner Video:
  17. Hello, when I have seen the new LEGO City Town Square (60097) first in Nuremberg at the international toy fair, the Tram of this set was really the highlight. Since then, I thought about, how to motorize this train - and if it is possible. The good answer is: It isn't a big deal - and looks really cool. Now, the tram is a kind of 9V highspeed-train - if you want. This is my video - lets start the journey: What do you think? Best wishes Andres
  18. Streetcar PCC 551 I had built a generic European Streetcar/Tram that I posted here and had then been shown images of a local (to me at least) Streetcar used in Kansas City. Once I saw it I knew I had to build it. This is an 8-wide, 48 stud long recreation of that Streetcar. The were a number of different paint schemes used in PCC 551's history including one with a black swoosh down the side, but this one is a later version. I used the red tile on a headlight brick to represent the KC Public Service logo which is the Scout image. Here's an image of the original taken by Stephen Rees https://flic.kr/p/5unpgz The windows are 'authentic'. Apparently the head of the KC Public Services department decided that the traditional split windows that normally come with the PCC looked old fashioned so he commissioned the new single pane approach. Here's an image of the doors - they're inset half a stud using jumper plates and made up of a combination of SNOT plates and tiles, L-shaped plates and Darth Maul's Light Sabers! Here's the door build details Of course there's an interior! With seating for 19 Passengers and standing room for a further 11. And one final shot of the Streetcar with a couple of passenger's who probably won't get it. Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome! Edit: Having a chance to think about the front end I'd like to show you this revised version
  19. MOC: Street Car/Tram

    Street Car / Tram I've been working on this for a while and to be honest I've struggled with scale. It started as a six-wide, got rebuilt as a seven-wide (fragile), then rebuilt again as an eight-wide (it looked enormous, but was structurally robust). Then I went back to a six-wide and added a 9v motor. I've also gone through a couple of iterations of window sizes - from 2x2's to 2x3's and back to 2x2's. But something still didn't quite look right so in the end I Bricklinked an order and built two versions so I could see them side by side and compare them. Here's the 6-wide version. It's powered by the 9v motor. Here's the 7-wide. It's currently unpowered and sits on a false bogie, but is easily modded to hold the 9v. And here's a comparison shot of the two together. So which one do you think I should send to the inventory bins? and which one should I use? Or should I scrap them both and start again? Comments, criticism, and ridicule most welcome.

  21. MOC - Hong Kong Wo Cheong Pawn Shop

    From wiki : The four bays of balcony type tenement buildings form a continuous facade verandah facing Johnston Road. It is quite likely that certain parts of the buildings could date from around 1888.The buildings lie on land reclaimed before 1887.In 1966, the Yu Clan purchased the building at 64, Johnston Road and inscribed the Chinese name of The Hong Kong Yu Clansmen Association on the top verandah facade. Woo Cheong Pawn Shop at 66, Johnston Road was originally owned by the Lo family, a well-known local pawnshop trader for over a century. It is my recently MOC historical architecture and join ¡§Build a Wonderful Hong Kong¡¨ Bricks Building contest. I designed it with serveral rooms with the traditional HK scene. The classic HK vehicle and Tram is placed for the decoration. And I got the LEGO and dinner buffet prize from the contest! Luck and Happy! It is the video created by the visitors : Here is the real pawn in HK.

  22. Barrie's Department Store

    Hi everyone, Here is my latest build, Barrie's department store. It was inspired by a department store in my home city of Newcastle Upon-Tyne. I wanted to do a long building with a high window display and build something on a large scale. It comes with a fully furnished interior on 4 floors which consist of a food hall, home furniture, ladies wear and a restaurant on the top floor. I added a 1930's streamlined 'balloon' design tram to the street scene even if these were not found in Newcastle at that time but it was fun to build Here's a few exterior and interior shots; More pictures can be found on my flickr here http://www.flickr.co...s/52656812@N04/ Comments welcomed as always!
  23. The Winter Village Market is a busy place. Minifigs from all over the town are coming to enjoy all the stalls with mulled wine, pretzels and other delicious stuff. And of course all the good offers. The children have fun riding the carrousels and ferris wheels, and are amazed by trains and landscapes showed by the local LUG. All day long, the trams bring the minifigs to and from the market place. I think someone has been doing some shopping at the Grand Emporium today. And look! Look who's coming to town...
